Double Wedding Ring Quilts with On Point Settings

A Chance to Win and 5 TIPS!

How about a little more fun with Double Wedding Ring?

And a chance to win the shape collection? OR a $40 Inklingo Gift Certificate?

You don’t have to be an expert quilter with a ton of patience to sew DWR anymore. Just print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo!

Today there are more Double Wedding Ring Quilt designs to inspire you and 5 tips to help you sew one.

 

This design has arcs with 8 pieces (plus ends). Impressive!

TIP 1  Use the unique pressing guide in the Double Wedding Ring Design Book to press the seams in the right direction—and to check the size of the arcs!

 

This is the same design with a few little tweaks. Approx 52 x 52 inches.

 

ON POINT SETTINGS

For me, the real magic happens when the blocks are turned on point.

This design is about 72 x 72.  Wouldn’t it look lovely on a bed with another row of DWR all the way around (96 x 96)?

TIP 2  Use the worksheets in the Double Wedding Ring Design Book OR the Double Wedding Ring Electric Quilt project file to find the finished size of your design.

Double Wedding Ring Quilts with an on-point design can be finished with a straight edge.

 

TIP 3 This half center is provided in two Inklingo layouts to print on fabric. Print the one with straight grain on the long side if you are using it on the outside edge of the quilt.

 

On-point with a medallion effect. Having a variety of centers with appropriate straight grain makes it possible.

 

This one uses the half center with straight grain on the long side.

TIP 4 You can put a Double Wedding Ring Border on any quilt! Had you thought of that?

 

All of the arcs in this one are identical, but . . .

 

. . .you can use more than one kind of arc in each quilt. So many choices!

 

I went with Russ to Niagara Falls NY yesterday to mail book orders. It was the perfect day to walk in Niagara-on-the-Lake too—without the weekend crowds. The spring flowers and blossoms are glorious right now. I came home inspired to try one more design.

 

I’ll call this one Blossoms in Niagara on the Lake.

If you compare these designs with ones in the two previous messages, I think you will see why I love on-point settings so much.

TIP 5 You can have 7 pieces (plus ends) in each arc by using two different sizes. That’s what I did for my blossoms design.

  13. The Double Wedding Ring has always been my favorite pattern but I have never felt competent enough to try it. My grandmother created many with ease but I was never around her when she did one to see how she made them (on a treadle sewing machine, no less) and that was also before I was bitten by the quilting bug.

  14. I’d live to win the DWR .I have tried to make one the old fashioned way, but I had to quit I love the various layouts on the blog.

  15. this is the top of my to do list and this looks like a perfect way to do it. I woud love to try the Inklingo way.

  16. Some of those patterns are gorgeous. Would love to try Inklingo using one of them.
    Thank you LInda for the chance.

  17. I had not heard of Inklingo until I read about it on Bonnie’s blog. It looks like a wonderful idea for completing a beautiful quilt — that I have been afraid to tackle the old fashioned way.

  18. Just when you THINK you’ve seen it all.. along comes Inklingo!

    Ok, I’ve been lurking for a while, but this just SO excites me – I’m going right to Quick Start to see how this process works! I just LOVE the possibilities for Double Wedding Ring – I’d love to win, but I’ll purchase it regardless! Thanks for refreshing a pattern that I need to do about six times for the family. I think Inklingo will make it fun to do variations!

    Thanks so much!

  19. I made a DWR once. It’s OK but with this I could make a really great one. I think I already know what color scheme I would use.

  20. Hi Linda – I have always wanted to do a DWR, I have templates, I have paper pieced patterns, I just need the courage 🙂 This looks like a great way to just DO IT! Thanks Linda! Have a lovely weekend.

  21. I’ve always wanted to make my own Double Wedding Ring and Inklingo is something new to me. Can’t stop going back to look at it again and again. Am I able to do it? Don’t know but it would be fun to try.

  22. I would love to win this package for the Double Wedding Ring quilt!! I have been quilting for about 20 years and have always shyed away from this quilt due to the small shapes that had to be cut… Paper piecing would be the way to go and I have never used the Inklingo product.. looks interesting!!!

  23. My goal is to make my mellinium quilt a double wedding ring! I am truly inspired by all of your designs! Now you have really whetted my appetite for d.w.r! Thanks for the inspiration!

  28. Boy do I find this interesting. I have a double wedding ring quilt that has been almost finished for so many years….this looks like a quilt that would actually be finished. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  29. Love the idea of printing right on the fabric. I would love to win your double wedding ring. One of my favorite patterns…

  30. I have always loved the DWR pattern, but have been afraid to try it. Thanks for making it easlier with Inklingo.

  31. I have wanted to make a double wedding ring quilt for my son since he married 2 years ago, but haven’t been confident enough to tackle the curved piecing. I would love, love love to have this Inklingo set!

  32. Thank you so much for a chance to win, love all the different layouts. Can’t wait to give it a try. Happy Monkey Mother’s Day!

  33. Linda, you are just so generous and thank you! I so want to try Inklingo but of course time gets in the way of trying something new. Guess I should just “do it!” By chance, would you be gifting time too?? 😉
